Fascinating production. Wonderful acting and staging. Kind of an odd ending, and it was okay

What FUN! My husband and I enjoyed the performance of "Venus in Furs" so much that we recommended it to all of our friends, and to several strangers, too! I've seen two-person plays before that kinda dragged, and I write fiction myself ... so I...continued

It was enjoyable, sometimes a trifle hard to follow when they changed roles, but a good point was made

Venus in Fur was great! Terrific acting and an innovative story and script. Hooray to Seattle Rep for bringing in the production.

The acting was spot-on, but we left wondering why anyone would bother to stage this script in the first place.

This was a great show and the somewhat academic synopsis about a psychosexual play within a play does not do it justice. Although it could have been 15 minutes shorter, that's true of many plays. Here, the trashy, no frills Vanda arrives late...continued

The female lead was top notch. Intriguing story. Still thinking about it today.

The play is 1 act, no intermission and I have to admit...I could have used an intermission. My attention began to wander as the same theme was talked about...and talked about...and talked about. Still, it is sexy and provocative. Would NOT...continued

Good experience at the box office - picked up ticket without any trouble and found my (very good) seat. Play is fun, sexy, thoughtful, provocative - actors are terrific - would be good date night.

I thought this play was brilliantly conceived, written and executed. The actors were both superb in very difficult parts. The lighting, set, costumes, etc. were all first-rate. I would recommend it to anyone who loves theater.

We discovered that our "Goldstar" seats were w-a-a-y up in the "nose-bleed" section. On the other hand, the theater isn't all that large, so, although we viewed the stage from quite a high angle, the sound system was great -- we heard every spoken...continued

It's a little too long with a bit of confusion in who the characters really are within the play or in the audition, but delightful, sexy energy.

I have a poster sized picture frame with every play I have seen filling it. I have attended theatre in NYC, London, SF, Washington DC, and Seattle....hundreds of shows, so this is a qualified review. This show was garbage, it tried so hard to...continued
